I can only state, that sealant and tape don't solve this issue with environments like outdoor sealed IP Camera housings as my prior link clearly shows and states why that's well documented past and current fact:

Leaving you with a few other choices such as vents and desiccant to help extend outdoor IP Camera life:

Desiccant packets are one of the cheapest methods to help extend outdoor IP Camera life.

And that helps with "change language, extract files and create own firmware" ?

Here is a fully working upgrade / downgrade from 5.2.8 to 5.2.5 with English day's of the week, I have tested this with my DS-2CD2132F-IS factory date was 2015-01 with 5.2.8 on the sticker, after the update all English Including days of the week Region Flag shows as 1 EN/ML.

Enjoy if it works for you.

It's all here in the posts, but playing with the files and applying different hacks to the files before using the hiktools create command. The only reason to do this is so we can all learn and not profit from it, so some smart arse on the forum gets less from everyone for his greed lol.

Just give it a try, I have used it on 6 different camera's all were 1/2015 all are now Full English.
You will not brick if it doesn't work for you, you will just be Chinese, So if you are just chinese at the moment nothing lost is there!

I just tried it on a 2532 cam that left the factory with 5.2.8 and arrived with 5.2.3 in full English, including the day of the week. The firmware changed the IPC to 5.2.5 but in full Chinese, no English anywhere. I wonder why it worked for your IPCs but not mine? I wonder if there is anything I can do to fix this? I'm pretty sure that my NVR will complain of "language mismatch" when I try it out later tonight.

Does anyone know how to calculate a new checksum if I've modified something?

If you can download grade to this 5.16 and your camera boots all ok. then yes you can do the hack.

HIKVISION 5.16 Full English including days of the weeks.

works with all 2cd2xxx models. Just flash with TFTP.

will work with some 5.2.8 models, if your 5.2.8 camera bricks just reflash back to 5.2.5 (this is not the firmware it's your Camera)

Enjoy!
Hi whoslooking,
I tried your 5.1.6 firmware for downgrading my 5.2.0 cameras and it works perfectly.
Now the version is: "V5.1.6 build 140412" so it seems to be April 2014 build.

Here: http://www.cam-it.org/index.php?topic=8148.msg48578#msg48578
I read: "Also, make sure you use the June 2014 build of 5.1.6 not the April 2014 5.1.6"

Do you know if there is a big improvement in June 2014 build?
And in that case, would it be possibile to patch that version and distribute it?

Or I could do it myself, if I understand well, with Hiktools, but I'm not so confident, so I need a few directions on how to proceed, then I'll be glad to post 5.1.6 June 2014 here if I manage to do it.

Thank you in advance
